Steny Hoyer draws challenger
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Republican leader in Maryland's House of Delegates says he will challenge Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer in the state's 5th Congressional District.
Fifty-year-old Delegate Anthony O'Donnell announced his candidacy on Wednesday.
O'Donnell says politicians in Washington have lost touch by spending too much money without thinking of the consequences to citizens. In a video announcement kicking off his candidacy, O'Donnell says it's time for the government to make sacrifices and reduce spending.
O'Donnell has represented parts of Calvert and St. Mary's counties in the House of Delegates since 1995.
He has been the minority leader since 2007.
